The Witch Hunt Against Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Continues, Race to 3M Dislikes
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare reveal trailer is now the second most disliked video on YouTube. Activision’s latest Call of Duty game is being trolled all over the internet, expect more memes, videos and posts making fun of the game now that it took over the second place on YouTube.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare defeated Rebecca Black’s Friday.
I am no fan of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare but at this point I truly feel bad for Infinity Ward. Imagine how bad things would be if they didn’t include Modern Warfare 4 remastered.
The game reached 2 million dislikes last night and now people over at YouTube are calling for a push to 3 million. COD is getting 15 to 20 dislikes per second, that adds up to 72,000 dislikes per hour. The like to dislike ratio of COD is worse than Rebecca Black’s Friday, at the time of this writing:
- Friday: 347,015 Likes – 2,083,954 Dislikes
- Infinite Warfare: 567,315 likes – 2,080,954 Dislikes
COD needs to redefine what it is and like Battlefield, Activision needs to take a break and think things through once again.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare takes players to space for the first time, which is a positive aspect of the game. Graphics look dated compared to Battlefield 1. In fact, it looks identical to Black Ops 3 with minor improvements here and there.
I am sympathetic towards Infinity Ward and in no way do I think it is their fault. Activision as a company needs to make some changes to the game’s development process. Possibly bring in new studios with fresh ideas. Current devs have been on the same game for so long, you can not expect them to be creative every year.
To be fair to COD, mob mentality and bandwagon hate is also playing a role this time around. While many have genuine concerns about the game and want the franchise to improve, others are just onboard the hate train for the sake of it.
